F Secure Pop ups
My F Secure is set to process unwanted files automatically but still "Pops up" to say it is doing something which means I have to acknowledge it rather than it process the files in the background. I can't see a setting to change this. It happens so frequently I'm thinking of changing. Could anyone help please? I run W10 on an Acer Aspire. Many thanks!
If you're getting very frequent pop-ups as you describe, this suggests that there may be a lot of malware on the machine, or some that F-Secure cannot remove. Do the pop-ups relate to the same thing each time? I've been running FS for several years, and probably only see a pop-up once or twice a year.
If you open the UI and go to Settings > Virus Protection, you should see links at the bottom to 'View Removal History' and 'View Quarantine'. Have a look at those and see if the same items keep appearing,
It may also be worth running a scan with something like Malwarebytes as that can find and remove some types of adware and PUPs (Potentially Unwanted Programs) which FS cannot.5 Like
